Welcome to Tropical band
To most people the phrase "tropical bands" bring a pretty clear picture to mind - a bunch of shirtless guys playing calypso music. But to experienced shortwave DXers those two little words express the most challenging and enjoyable part of the radio hobby. The phrase kindles memories of a DXer's best catches and favorite QSLs, of exotic stations, music and of early morning listening sessions. (Don Moore)

Mainly a day of frustrations for all concerned, but slow progress was made with Agenda Item 1.4 (5 MHz).
The proposal from CITEL, representing a number of American States, was reduced to align with the CEPT proposal for 100 kHz, while the Arab Spectrum Management Group also agreed Group also agreed to increase their proposal from 15 kHz to 50 kHz.
On the negative side, the No Change administrations held fast in their positions and indications are that this will not change in the immediate future.
Tomorrow it might be necessary to raise the agenda item to the next level of Working Group 4 to achieve further progress.
